Tagovailoa, a junior, was weighing whether or not to enter the draft or return for his senior year. He had suffered a few injuries in his collegiate career with the Crimson Tide, the most significant of which came in November at Mississippi State. Tua dislocated his right hip, but surgery went well and offered an “excellent” prognosis for a full recovery.
The timeline for Tagovailoa’s return remains ambiguous, though many seem optimistic that he’ll be able to play at a high level when he does come back.
